New tee-shirts going well

They’ve only been on sale for 48 hours or so but it’s reported from HQ that our new tee shirts in support of the NHS and other key workers are going well and are proving popular well beyond Oldham and the surrounding areas.

Orders have already come in from places like Wakefield, Walsall and Sunderland.

Half of the profits from the sale of these ‘NHS’ shirts will go to local NHS charities so by buying you are not only helping Roughyeds; you are also helping the NHS and all those wonderful key workers whose job on the front line during the Coronavirus pandemic has saved thousands of very sick people, including our very own Brendan Sheridan.

“We all owe a great debt to the doctors, nurses and other key workers who have put their own lives on the line to help everybody else and this is one way we can show our appreciation,”

said Oldham RLFC chairman Chris Hamilton, who is himself an NHS volunteer worker.

You have until next Sunday night, June 28, to put in your orders for the tee-shirt via the Roughyeds website. They are priced at £29 and come in all sizes (see website).

Club Cash

SINCE Covid-19 caused us to temporarily abandon door-to-door CLUB CASH lottery collections last Spring there’s never been a better time to come on board and help Roughyeds to get through these hugely challenging times.

Why? The £500-a-week rollover jackpot is back — not only that there are now TWO £50 prizes and TWO £25 prizes in addition to the first prize of £1,000, a second prize of £100 and ten consolation prizes of £10.

But the return of the jackpot is the big lottery news. It’s back this week and it’s been won first time out, so next week’s jackpot is again £500 but if nobody touches lucky it will go up to £1,000 the following week and increase by £500 a week, if not won, to a maximum of £10,000.

We have seriously missed the regular income from collections on the doorstep, but we cannot thank too much those supporters who have got behind the club in these unprecedented times of hardship by keeping their Club Cash memberships going or, indeed, by joining for the first time, knowing that for £1 a week they can help the club to combat Covid and prepare with confidence for the challenges of Betfred Championship rugby in 2021.

You can send a cheque to cover a set number of weeks; take out a bank standing order — our preferred option; complete a bank transfer; or pay for several weeks up front by credit or debit card.

You can download a standing order form by clicking on the link at the end of this news release and following the instructions or you can contact our Club Cash administrator John McAndrew (tel: 07980 129541; email: mcandrewj@aol.com) or speak to the club direct on 07904 898177 or email to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

The easiest way, though, is to download a standing order form below. The latest prize updates are shown on the form as follows (all for £1): £1,000, £100, £50 (2), £25 (2), a number of £10 consolation prizes and the £500-a-week rollover jackpot.

Best of luck!
